Well, I know the windshields from coupes and convertibles are different than fastbacks, according to the Hollander exchange manual. It also says the '73 are different, too.

They are different, as are the windshields.

Yep they are different. I never understood
why Ford did that. Also the Drip rails on a coupe are about 2" shorter than a sportsroof. Found that out the hard way.
